· Ericsson demonstrates live DO Advanced Smart Networking techniques
· DO Advanced significantly enhances the user experience in a loaded network
· DO Advanced Smart Networks can provide up to 30-45 percent network capacity gain
Ericsson has reached an important milestone in the development of EVDO Advanced by successfully demonstrating DO Advanced Smart Networking capabilities at CTIA. This further showcases Ericsson's innovation and commitment to CDMA.
Ericsson is demonstrating how DO Advanced enables a high quality user experience in a loaded EVDO network. DO Advanced techniques allocate network resources intelligently to utilize data capacity more efficiently and to address uneven distribution of wireless data traffic in the network. DO Advanced Smart Network techniques can provide up to 30 to 45 percent capacity gain in today's deployed EVDO networks.
The techniques being demonstrated require software only upgrades to existing EVDO network infrastructure. No change is required to the handset. Wireless operators can significantly increase the number of data subscribers supported and improve the user experience with faster download and improved application performance.
"DO Advanced is the next significant CDMA technology enhancement to address the increased demand for data in our customers' networks." says Paul Challoner, VP CDMA Product Management, Ericsson. "DO Advanced implementation is another proof point of Ericsson's focus on innovative solutions to drive the CDMA industry forward."
